> > I have been taking 75 mg. of effexor a day for 2 years. I believe it may have lost its effect. I have heard that Prozac 'poops out' after awhile and people have to increase their dosage. Has anyone had this experience with effexor?

> At 75mg/day, some authorities feel that Effexor is primarily an SSRI. 'Poop out' has been described with SSRIs - especially prozac, although that may eflect how popular prozac is - but seems ( to my understanding at least) to be less common with the older antidepressants which usually had a mixed or noradrenergic mechanism. If you push the dose of effexor up, you may start to get the benefit of the noradrenergic reuptake inhibition. Chat to your doc. All the best, Nick

Nick, thank you very much for the reply. I appreciate your input.
